Beginning with the seed of local collectors, the Deerfield Valley Art Asociation has begun work toward establishing a Museum in Franklin County for which it plans to acquire, preserve, exhibit and promote the art, craft, and design created by artists born or working significantly in the New England states.
To this end, DVAA maintains a working committee and a fund for the ultimate purpose of housing current DVAA-member exhibtions and the historical collections of the Museum of New England Art.
We welcome public participation; please contact us for information on how you can contribute to the Museum project: 413 225-3132 or
